Our IPM students, Nishita (she/her), Escandita Tewari, Ishika Garg, share their experiences which they had during their summer internship at : Mahila Umang Producers Company an NGO situated near Ranikhet.
Contribution to Society: Umang is a women’s collective of self-help groups and producer – members engaged in promoting sustainable livelihoods through establishment of micro enterprises.
“The 2022 Summer Internship at UMANG, Ranikhet has been an enriching experience. Giving as an opportunity to step out of our comfort zone while staying at a remote location, away from our home, this internship has made us aware of the innumerable challenges that are faced on a day to day basis by numerous women. It has been an eye opener to the sheer determination and perseverance of the hill women, in not only ensuring their financial freedom but also, empowering their communities to be strong and independent. Working and researching at this women led organisation, has given us enough impetus to take away as learnings and implement it in our everyday lives.”
